I still love this product and would like to make sure you know how appreciated it is that you’ve taken so much of your time to build such a professional looking and feeling product. There isn’t anything quite like it out there.
That being said, because of my knowledge on building and managing minecraft servers, it’s kind of a hobby, I have been asked (at work) if I could spearhead the deployment and administration of Minecraft EDU since we are piloting a project for our school district.
The entire packaging and the way their server launcher works is pretty intuitive for the average user, but being a systems administration at heart, I felt that providing our staff and students with a more stable system hosted on MineOS could suit their needs in a more manageable and secure setup. We run a virtual infrastructure so all this setup is running virtually using turnkey 64bit ISO on a vmware host.
The MineOS is built and ready to go, and I was watching the most recent installation video the dev created (August 2015) and have to say I am impressed with the changes since I last touched it.
Since MinecraftEDU has its own development path, I was wondering if the devs or the community had ideas on how I could deploy and manage the EDU worlds it builds, and maybe even the server ‘tools’ it offers, and implement it somehow into the MineOS web UI.
Currently what I am trying to do is document and create a working EDU built server, hosted on MineOS. When building my ‘profile’, I was hoping I’d see ‘EDU’ in the list, but being that EDU is a paid plugin/mod, it’s obvious why it’s not listed.
In any of your opinions, how would I go ahead and get a server running, with multiple worlds copied over and ready to be played on.
My ideas are to have, a) the tutorial world uploaded, b) a newly created EDU world uploaded
They use 1.7.2 as their stable standard and thus far are not moving along to a future version anytime soon. If it works, it works.
Anyone else have this scenario or something similar? Any input, any guide, anything really.
I’m certain I can figure things out on my own, but why re-invent the wheel and why not see what others might suggest to make my life a little easier, and maybe even return the favor and share my own results and document them here and on reddit.
